Family: Lamiaceae

There are many different types and forms of mint available to gardeners.  Different types of Mint have different leaves and deliver different aromas and flavours.  I adore mint and over the years I have grown every type I’ve been able to find.  I’m always searching for the best flavoured mints to grow in my garden.

Mint is a vigorous growing plant and that can quickly take over a bed   I always recommend growing mint in containers to prevent Mint from taking over your garden.  Mint flourishes in peat-free compost.

I’ve mentioned mint in many articles I’ve written; here’s a link to an article I wrote about the best flavoured mints I’ve grown.

This post is about drying mint in my dehydrator.

This post is about propagating mint by dividing plants.
